Book Release: Switch Hitter by Sara Ney

 

I knew something was wrong the second she walked in the door tonight; I just couldn’t put my finger on what it was.

Same hair color.

Same legs.

Same face.

Except…I look harder.

At the small dimple beneath her lip that wasn’t there the last time we went out. And her laugh—that laugh isn’t as loud.

This isn’t the girl I’ve gone out with the past few weeks.

It’s her twin sister, and they’ve switched places on me.

Only I’m not quite ready to let them switch back.

Book Release and Review: What He Doesn’t Know by Kandi Steiner

What He Doesn’t Know by Kandi Steiner

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Cover Designer: Kandi Steiner

WHDK cover FINAL_1

On the northeast side of town, there is a house.

The house was once magical, filled with love and joy and plans for the future.

Inside its walls are many things that belong to me — my books, the china from my mother on my wedding day, the beautiful cage once home to two birds, now empty, just like me.

And a man.

A man who also belongs to me.

A man I no longer wish to keep.

A man who, no doubt, has not slept, though the sun is rising. Because the house where he waits is where I laid my head to rest every night for eight years. Until last night.

No one who knows me would believe Charlie Pierce, the quiet, bookish girl who never made waves is pulling out of the driveway of a man who isn’t her husband.

But they don’t know me at all.

I don’t even know me.

Not anymore.

They say there are two sides to every story, and I suppose in most cases, that’s true. But the one I live inside of? It has three.

On the northeast side of town, there is a house.

But there is no longer a home.

MY REVIEW

First of all, let me say, that I haven’t read Kandi Steiner before. Big mistake. Big. If all of her books are like What He Doesn’t Know, I have truly been missing out. I will know where to go when I need an angsty love story. The emotions in this book are off the chart and these characters had my head spinning. Alot of readers don’t like love triangles. I personally love them and I really enjoy them when they are well written and you aren’t quite sure who should be with who. Kandi Steiner nailed the troupe and you almost don’t even think of it as a love triangle but just as a story of people falling in and out of love.

Charlie is a character that you can’t help but feel for because most of us have either been there or no someone that has in a marriage. Marriages require work…lots of work and when a tragedy happens, it usually either makes or breaks the relationship. Unfortunately for Charlie, she is in an awful middle ground…limbo. Cameron clearly loves her but he is broken as well not only over their shared tragedy but by his past and his own mistakes. Sometimes it all piles up and it is hard to see clear and just love the person again.

Reese is back after an extended time away from home. He is also searching for something….family…connection….and Charlie was always it for him. He knows she is married but he just sees the girl he fall in love with a long time ago….broken and a shell of herself.

The dance these three do around each other is heartbreaking and so well written that you fly through the pages. I literally went for pages without breathing and when I finally did, my heart ached for these characters. The ending took my breath away and I am dying to know what will happen in the next book.

Thanks, Kandi Steiner for engulfing me with this story. I’m sorry I haven’t read your other books but I promise to remedy it quickly. This is an epic read and one of my favorites for 2018 so far.Now Available Horizontal

tb-amazonCyrene Strohm is a Queen’s Affiliate, a high-ranking official of the court of Byern, with power and privilege to spare. But she’s also a keeper of dangerous secrets: like the fact that she holds the heart of the King, and that she possesses magic in a world where magic no longer exists.

Determined to discover what this means and how to use her newfound abilities, Cyrene sets off for the distant land of Eleysia. An island nation where Affiliates are strictly forbidden from entering.

But the journey is perilous, and the destination may mean utter ruin, as Cyrene comes to learn that everything she’s been told her whole life – about her court, her homeland, and even herself—are bound in a beautiful lie.

After the loss of a friend and false imprisonment in an Eleysian dungeon, Cyrene has no interest in destiny. Her heart was shattered, friends scattered, and her home is nothing but a pretty illusion. Even her magic won’t cooperate.
When all seems lost, she turns to the one person she never thought that she would trust:

Prince Kael.

His darkness mirrors a growing force lurking within her. A struggle she never imagined threatens to consume her. And as friends and foes begin to show their true colors, she starts questioning whether anyone is who they seem.
Even herself.

Book Release and Review: Charming Hannah by Kristen Proby

SBPR-Banner-CharmingHannah-BT-1.jpg

Charming Hannah by Kristen Proby
Publication Date: February 27th, 2018

CharmingHanna_Amazon_WEB

From New York Times Bestselling author, Kristen Proby, comes the first in an all-new trilogy in her beloved Big Sky Series!

Hannah Malone loves her new town. Despite living in Cunningham Falls for five years, she’s still considered a “move in” by most of the locals, and that doesn’t bother her in the least. She’s the “new girl”, and she hasn’t regretted it for one day. This town is her sanctuary. Her home. The one place she finally fits in and feels safe after a lifetime of being different and running from the memories and a past so far away it can’t haunt her anymore.

As the newly appointed police chief, Brad Hull has the responsibility to keep his citizens safe and to maintain order. His roots in this town are deep—five generations deep, to be exact. Cunningham Falls, Montana is his town, and being a cop and protecting what’s his is his passion. Everything’s running like clockwork until a sassy redheaded doctor moves in and disrupts the order—and Brad’s focus.

She’s not just beautiful, funny, and strong. Hannah’s everything he’s been looking for in a woman. The chemistry is undeniable, and the heat in the bedroom is off the charts. Brad knew the minute he met Hannah that she was the one for him. He’s tenacious in his pursuit of her. But when the past catches up with Hannah, will Brad be able to protect her and their hearts?

Excerpt:

Someone is ringing my fucking doorbell. I was at the hospital until the wee hours, I was finally in a deep, lovely sleep, and someone is ringing the bell.

All I know for sure is, this had better not be the damn door-to-door people trying to sell me a vacuum. Or a magazine. Or Jesus.

I wrap my robe around me, stumbling toward the door. I pull it open and am surprised to find an excited Sadie and a ridiculously sexy Brad standing at my door.

“Is that coffee?” I ask.

“For you,” he confirms and holds it out to me.

“Come to mama,” I mutter and take it from his hand, taking a grateful sip. Sadie brushes past my leg, into the house, and curls up on my couch.

“She’s not supposed to be on the furniture,” Brad says.

“My house, my rules,” I reply and take another sip of the one thing in this world I’m addicted to, and give him a once over from head to toe. “You look like you got about as much sleep as I did.”

“Rough night?” he asks without confirming or denying.

“Babies,” I reply with a shrug. “You?”

He just shrugs. “Are you going to ask me in?”

“Sure.” I back up and gesture him into the room. “Sorry, I was sleeping pretty good. My energy level is about equal to a sloth on Xanax.”

“I can leave and let you go back to bed.”

His eyes roam up and down my body, reminding me that I’m just in a robe and nothing else. His green eyes are hot, and every muscle in his body is tight.

Even sleep deprived, I can tell when a man is in the mood.

“You’ve brought me coffee. I’ll never kick you out when you’ve done that.”

“I’ll remember that,” he says with a chuckle.

“Besides, I have plenty of room.” I turn and walk into my bedroom, glancing behind me to see that he’s following me. He makes a hand gesture at Sadie, which I assume means stay. “We can take a nap,” I suggest.

His lips twitch, but he doesn’t say anything when he joins me next to the bed. He takes my coffee and sets both of our cups on the bedside table.

“Is that what you want, Hannah?” he murmurs and skims his fingertips down my arms.

“Eventually.”

MY REVIEW

Kristen Proby is starting a new series set in Montana in Charming Hannah. We even get to go back and visit Cunningham Falls and some of our old favorite characters. Charming Hannah is the story of Dr. Hannah Malone who is an outsider who moved into the small town when a job opens up. She is running away from her past and looking for a cleaner simpler life.

Enter Brad Hull. He is the Police Chief and has known of Hannah for a few years but thought she was taken. When he finds out that she is single, he jumps at the chance to ask her out. Hannah is fearful of dating and even more fearful of relationships but Brad literally walks and talks her through all of her issues. There is literally no big conflict and the story follows these two as they work their way to love and happiness.

If you enjoy an easy, smooth story that has a fantastic couple working their way to love then Charming Hannah is a perfect book for you. I’m looking forward to Max and Jenna’s story in the next installment.

Meet Kristen:

Kristen was born and raised in a small resort town in her beloved Montana. In her mid-twenties, she decided to stretch her wings and move to the Pacific Northwest, where she made her home for more than a dozen years.

During that time, Kristen wrote many romance novels and joined organizations such as RWA and other small writing groups. She spent countless hours in workshops, and more mornings than she can count up before the dawn so she could write before going to work. She submitted many manuscripts to agents and editors alike, but was always told no. In the summer of 2012, the self-publishing scene was new and thriving, and Kristen had one goal: to publish just one book. It was something she longed to cross off of her bucket list.

Not only did she publish one book, she’s since published close to thirty titles, many of which have hit the USA Today, New York Times and Wall Street Journal Bestsellers lists. She continues to self publish, best known for her With Me In Seattle and Boudreaux series, and is also proud to work with William Morrow, a division of HarperCollins, with the Fusion Series.

Kristen and her husband, John, make their home in her hometown of Whitefish, Montana with their two pugs and two cats.
